Trashing huge robot trucks has gotta be worth SOMETHING! I can't wait for transFARMERS (from Corner Gas)

Oreanta

2Jurassic Park
Yes, Transformers may have awesome and stylish visuals, but what about the film that made these elements strong enough to inspire movies like Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Star Wars Prequels E.T.C.

In my personal opinion, Jurassic Park will remain the father of recent special effects and I'm glad Steven Spielberg made it possible. Also, it gave us a more realistic approach of dinosaurs and the result was terrifying and breathtaking.

After 65 Millon Years they were back

MatrixGuy

Great visuals, especially from a film in the early 90's because it didn't have what Transformers and other recent films have today. It was just so realistic.

None of the Tranformers movies have even won an Academy award for best visual effects. How is it number one? I would believe the consensus would make this movie. It is stunningly beautiful and a lot better than Tranformers.

5Star Wars
Hey, ever heard of ILM? It stands for Industrial light and magic and has done special effects to almost all big movies released after Star Wars, including harry potter, jurassic park, Indiana jones, pirates of the caribbean, avatar and hundreds others. Just name a movie, theyve done it! Without star wars special effects as we know it wouldn't exist! Think about it!
There are movies that came out in the 2000's that have inferior Special Effects to this 1977 masterpiece

6Terminator 2: Judgment Day
this piece of excellency and shear of what hollywood is
made in 1991 best before the world knew whats special and visual effects

shawnsoscar

This should be number 1. Because in 1991 is not technological days. It shows how hard to try make this movie...
This movie set a new standard of visual graphics for the movie industry. In 1991 these were top notch and can even compete in 2014!

7Maleficent

8Titanic
We can't imagine how hard was record this movie. They didn't have ship or ocean or anything, but they recorded one of the greatest movies ever!
